Oh gosh-was I surprised. I totally thought the ultrasound doctor was wrong at 13 weeks..seemed impossible. But, maybe he was better than we give him credit? Hahaha! Or he was preparing us? Totally.
We are excited, and soooo thankful that our sweet baby boy is healthy. Everything looked great today. The placenta is low again..it's on my cervix, but it should move up. I'll have a c-section anyway, so I think it'll be fine. : )
I have already separated out the girl clothes I got on Black Friday with the kids. I'll take those back in the next couple of days, and get some more boy clothes. I have to say, I did cry for the first time today separating them, but I'm okay. I'm so thankful to HAVE a baby, to have a HEALTHY baby, and that we're still making it!
We talked about names..since Ethan feels it is über important to have a name! We have a few: Maximilian Nicholas, Maximilian Xavier, Zachary Nicholas, Carter Nicholas (Ches doesn't like so much), and William Xavier. He loves Cole and Chase (because they play for the Phillies!!), but I'm not crazy about them. I think Maximilian Xavier or Nicholas is in the top spot...we'll ask the kids for a vote too. : )
..and we have to tell them! I was going to call the nurse to tell Mary Claire on her 12:00 blood check, but there is a substitute nurse, and I didn't know how Boy would go over. I'll tell them all after school. ; ) Praying for happy responses and good attitudes from all! God chose what we needed, and He knows our long term plans.
Just thankful for today, and to be here in this spot right now! Thank you SO much for all your prayers for our family, we can feel them. We have J-O-Y on this happy day! : )
